GEMINI NEW MOON 2011

New Moon Eclipse
There are two eclipses during June. Neither is visible in the US but its’ affects
are none the less prevalent. The New Moon in Gemini helps us remember
’what we think’ eventually filters out into the world. ’What we think’ makes a difference.
Social and intellectual areas of life are highlighted during this new moon through
the aspects as well. (aspects are conjunctions, oppositions, trines, etc.) Saturn is in exact
opposition to this new moon and adds its distinctive touch.
Saturn is the planet of form and structure and it is in Libra (balance). During
this new moon it contributes stability and alternatives for Gemini to deal with
difficult social situations. New starts required during this time might mean
controversy; not always a bad thing but sometimes difficult to withstand.
Another character playing a role at this time is Neptune.
Neptune turns retrograde on June 3 and remains so for five months.
This change in motion may encourage us to look closer at the spiritual
side of life. Just how we do that is a personal and individual choice
based on many factors.
Also during this new moon period
Jupiter enters Taurus on June 4. Jupiter changes sign once in 12 years.
“There are many things to be shared with the Four Colors
of humanity in our common destiny as one with our Mother the Earth.
It is this sharing that must be considered with great care by the
Elders and the medicine people who carry the Sacred Trusts,
so that no harm may come to people through
ignorance and misuse of these powerful forces.”
Resolution of the Fifth Annual Meetings of the Traditional Elders Circle, 1980
